Spending time with Alex made feel a little bit better but not enough.I had bought a plane ticket to fly back to America,I didn't have a plane but I had a choice.I could never forgive myself or I could be happy with my family.Alex had stayed with my mom,I didn't think it was the time was right to tell Anna I adopted another child without her consent.I got of the plane and went out of the airport and caught a taxi.
"Where to?"He asked.
I told the cab driver address to the house.He looked at me kind of funny.
I looked down at my body,I began to disappear.
"Not now!"I fussed.
seguinte you know,In a closet,It was dark.I couldn't see,but I could hear heavy breathing and moans.I sightly opened it,I was disgusted,Anna and her ex-Boyfriend were making love,He was on topo, início of her.
I could see her face in the moonlight when it wasnt attached to his body,She looked young.I could tell where I was por the looks of the walls,I was in at our house.I could hear in the through the mural someone crying.It sounded like Courtney,Her younger stepsister.I looked down again at my body,Half of my body vanished.
And With a blink of an eye,the scene changed once more.I was at a Zoo sitting on a bench.It looked modernized,So I guessed I was about two days in the past.I see Kenna and Ronnie standing together looking at two giraffes and baby one.
I remembered how giraffes were Kenna's favorito animal.
She looked at Ronnie and asked something,I couldn't hear from afar.
Ronnie looked at her with sad eyes then said nothing,but just hugged her.
I seen a small ano roll off of Ronnie's cheek.
"It'll be okay,as long as we have each other."I could see her mouth.
My coração started to break and fill with devastation,I stood up and looked the other way.There stood Anna and Drew.He looked at her and told a joke he made her laugh,He made her happy.She gazed apon him with a smile.I felt a few tears of regret fall from my watery eyes.
"Hey,What's a young fellow like you doing upset?"An old man approached me.
"I made some mistakes and regrets."I admitted.
"Well,I can understand,My names Za..Zach,Yea,Zach Matthews."
"Nice to meet you,Zach,I'm Zayn."I said.
"Yea,Um nice to meet you.."he mumbled."Do you have a moment,I'd like to tell you a story."
"Sure,I have nothing really to do."
"Years ago,there was a young man,rather like you,He was very foolish,but he knew how to love.
He met a girl when he was young.She was beautiful and his everything,Black hair and dark eyes.
He helped her through the hard time and she loved him and he loved her,So they were married,and had 2 beatiful children,Until he made a mistake and left his wife and wonderful life.Afterward he didn't do much with his life.Thats really all to it."
"How could it be?"
"Well,I..He grew old and understood why things happen.He regretted leaving for every segundo of it."
"So,what you telling me is I should rethink things before I do it."
"Thank you for your time."he said with out a smile.I watched him walk away,He then vanished into thin air.
"I thought he looked familiar,But who is he?"I asked myself.
I looked down at my body once more.
My legs were gone,so I closed my eyes and opened them again.I was in front of Our house,by the looks of it,I was in the present,Mid day.I walked up to the porch,Annas car wasn't there,I guessed she wasn't home.
I entered anyway,I heard silence in that big eerie home,That was once filled with amor and good times.
"Daddy?"I heard the sweet whisper of Kenna.
I ran to hug her and said to her,
"Yes,Daddy's here,I missed you,Sweet girl"I started to cry.
"Daddy,Why are you so sad?I've never seen you cry"She asked.
"I'm not sad,I just missed you so do much."
"Daddy,Please don't leave again."she cried.
Then I looked on the stairwell,there stood Ronnie.She looked down at me with tears in her eyes.I stood up,and walked up to her,She met me half way.I hugged her as she cried into my shoulder.
"I'm sorry,Dad."she managed to say.
"No,Princess I'm sorry."I said to her as I held her in my arms.
I heard a car pull up.I hurried to upstairs,I ran inside Ronnie's room,They followed.
"You can't tell your mother I'm here."I told Ronnie.
"What do I do??"
"Just play it off,Like nothin happened,and Keena just smile and be cute."
"You can't just hide in my room like a fugitive!!"
"I'm am your father and I can be a fugitive if I want to be a fugitive,Now go act lonely and upset."
They walked out the door.
I wasn't very happy,Drew was staying the night,sleeping in my bed,While I was stuck with Ronnie,We sat together on her bed,playing cards like old broke people do.
"Thats why you left?"Ronnie asked.
"Pretty damn much."
"I can see why,Just I think it's stupid."
Well honey,Love is the most stupid things ever."
"Thats true."she put down an ace,Then took my cards.
"This is why I quit gambling years ago,I suck."I said.
"I bet Kenna could beat you in gold peixe anytime."
"I'm not going to risk my entire self esteem for a game of cards."
She started to look a coração on a card.
"What you thinking about?"I asked.
"What's amor dad?"
"Well,um...I show you."I grabbed a king and a queen,one in each hand."When there's this feeling,like a spark,in between two people it's called chemistry,and when that spark turns in to a fire,it burns."I put the cards together."And sometimes it goes out."I separated them again.
"Dad,Is you and moms fogo starting to go out?"
"No,Darling,not at all.I amor your mother very much,it's just sometimes people need a break,and we haven't exactly been faithful or fair to one another lately,But that's why I came back to fix that."
"then why are you hiding?"
"Well,Sometimes daddy himself doesn't know why he does things but sometimes they can upset him or make him happy."
"Well,Um..I kind of...You now have a brother,yea yay..."
"His names Alex,I adopted him,He's 13.Hes with your grandma right now."
"What,Eh?Tell me again."
Then the door sino rang.She went downstairs.
I peeked out the door.
"Do you know how far the airport is from here???"Alex stood at the door.
"Dammit."I caught myself saying.
"....Your..."Ronnie looked at him."Just be quite and follow me."
"Ronnie whose there?"I heard Anna's voice.
"It's a kid,He's lost,"said Ronnie.
"Hey,Im not a kid!"
Anna walked downstairs in her robe,I had bought it months ago.
She looked as beautiful as she did twenty years ago,I found my self falling in amor with her all over again.
"Hi,What's your name?"she waved to Alex.
I froze,She had a wedding ring on her finger.
"Im uh...My name is hunter."Lied Alex."I was told to go here,I lost my dad at the airport."
I was trying to understand all of this,Did she marry Drew,Did she divorce me because I didn't call,Does she amor me?
There was so many perguntas but I had to hide.I hid in her closet.I was devasted but my mom always told me to be happy as long as I can,I didn't think about it,I cleared it out of my mind.I had to focuse on staying hides and calm,I wasn't sure of why she had the ring on and just hoped for the best,Because u couldn't wonder about the worst.Sometimes in life you have to fake the smiles and laugh away the pain,because someone else always has it worse.I felt a tear stream down my face but I wiped it away.There was a little left of my life but I held on to my small hopes,because there was a slim chance she loved me,Even through it was one and million,i was pretty messed up for going out with that woaman i met on the plane,that 1st night,But everything happens for a reason.If I hadn't met her and broke her heart,I would have never met Alex.Suddenly my body started to dissapear,I started to time travel again.I closed my eyes tight to a squint,Then opened them again.I was in the same place,But it was dia time.I got up out of the closet,I looked at my surroundings.The walls were yellow and with small painted rosa, -de-rosa flores on them,There was a small childs cama with princesses on it.Next to the cama was a doll house and a few barbies.
"Okay daddy,I'll try to understand."I heard a little girls sadden voice,She then entered the room,She wore a flowered dress and wore watery eyes.She looked like,She was Anna.I traveled years in the past.She glared at me,With her big brown eyes,She was cute and young about the age of 4.
"Shh,Child,I know why your sad."
"Well,Mr.Know it all why am I sad."she Sassed.
She seemed bothered,and frustrated.
"Your mother,I know about your lost,I know how it feels.When I was a young boy my father died."
"Who are you?"
"Someone you'll meet soon in life,But now just call me Mr.Know-It-All."
"Well,If I'll meet you soon,why are you here,based on the fact I just met you."she was a smart cookie.
"And this is crazy."I sang.
"Oh nothing,it's a song."
"What are you then?"
"Let's just say for now I'm an angel,"
"Yea,But,sometimes,even anjos arent perfect."
"I can tell,Your hair is messy."
I felt my hair.
"Haha,Your funny,"I told her.
"darn tootin I am,"
"Honey,Who are you talking to?"I heard a voice,it was her father.
Man,What would I give to see that man again I thought.
I looked down to see my feet were gone,Vanishing slowly.He entered the room,Then just stared at my dissapearing body.
"Daddy,his an angel.He knows about momma."
I closed my eyes and opened them again,I was in the closet once more,night time.I heard a noise,They were coming upstairs.
"Then why are you atuação so suspicious?"I heard Anna voice.
"Im not,I don't know what your talking about."
"If James is here,all you had to do ask."
"James isn't here mom,Just go,Im about to go to sleep."
"Okay,goodnight sweet heart,"she must have left.
I got up and went out the closet.
"No,Not yet!"she yelled.
I was already standing in the middle of the room,out in the open.
"Veronica,I tired and I'm not going to play games with you,Whose there?"she said as she opened the door.
She froze and just stared at me.
"Your the angel?"
"Dad,You got some explaining to do."Alex walked in.
I didnt really know where to start of but with a kiss.I walked up to her and wrapped my arms around her kissed her sweet doces like lips.
"The 1st thing,You need to know is I amor you."I looked at her with tears in her eyes.I took my thumb and wiped the away.
"I'm never going to leave you again."
She hugged me and cried on my shoulder.Ronnie start to cry to,I hugged her.I looked at Anna's hand,It was wedding ring alright but it was the one I gave her.
"Oh honey,I never remarried,I never stopped loving you but that doesn't tell me who the hell is he?"
She looked at Alex.Ronnie started to giggle.
"Oh momma,You just don't know."she said
